Resilience and Emergency Preparedness

Building (disaster) resilience and emergency preparedness / response planning involves supporting the capacity of individuals, communities and states to adapt through assets and resources relevant to their context. It also implies enhancing peoples’ rights and addressing socio-economic, gender and environmental inequalities that exacerbate vulnerability.

Thus, our approach is to work in support of all the seven dimensions of Community Resilience, summarized in the acronym PEOPLES: Population and Demographics, Environmental/Ecosystem, Organized Governmental Services, Physical infrastructures, Lifestyle and Community Competence, Economic Development, and Socio-Cultural Capital.
